Trip of a lifetime made special by Walking Stick (Philimon & crew)
5/5

Our 11-day safari began at the Maun airport, a bit stressed due to late flights causing us not to get to our first campsite (by canoe!) until nearly dark. Philimon's crew was friendly, attentive and most importantly 100% committed to our safety and comfort at all times. After 2 nights on a island in the delta, we canoed (mokoro) back out and began the long journey to Moremi. Philimon is a master at finding interesting game both on his own and through his CB radio network and frequent chats with other guides. We really saw so much more than anticipated including 4 of the big 5 (no rhino along our route).

We could not recommend Walking Stick more highly. They work so hard without a single complaint and made us feel comfortable and safe and satisfied with our photo journey, we can't wait to book again in a few years!

An unforgettable safari experience!
5/5

We had an incredible 9 day safari through Botswana with Walking Stick Travel and Tour. We started our tour in Chobe and then traveled to Savuti, Khwai and the Okavango Delta, spending two nights in each spot. Traveling to these different areas provided great diversity in landscape and we were able to see lots of animals across all the areas. Each day we had a morning and afternoon safari as well as one night safari. All the facilities were amazing, with great tents, comfortable beds, and a spacious and comfortable safari vehicle.

The guides and staff on our tour were amazing. Our tour guide Lee was very experienced and knowledgable about the different areas, animals and animal tracking. He always tried his best to make sure we could get the most out of each day. Our chef Joe was an amazing cook who whipped up delicious meals for us each day. The highlight of Joe’s cooking was the freshly made bread each morning for breakfast. Our camp hands Photos and KK were always there to lend a helping hand, setting up our tents, preparing the showers and answering any questions.

Philimon was very helpful with the booking of our safari. He was very quick at replying to emails and always answered our questions. All the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing experience.

We highly recommend using the Walking Safari Travel and Tour Company for a Safari in Botswana!

Wonderful, 'all-inclusive' one week private safari in Botswana
5/5

We highly recommend Walking Stick Travel & Tours. Phillimon and his staff provided excellent, attentive, and professional services during our one-week private safari in Botswana. Prior to our arrival, email communication was prompt and efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed each of the locations (Okavango Delta, Moremi, Khwai): picturesque campsites, delicious and ample food, incredible scenery, and beautiful wildlife. The whole 'safari' experience was amazing, and exceeded our expectations in every way. As much as anything, we enjoyed meeting and conversing with Phillimon and his staff throughout the week, and we learned so much about the beautiful country of Botswana. We definitely plan to return, and booking another trip with Phillimon and Walking Stick is at the top of our list!

Walking Stick Tours is a 5 Star operation!
5/5

Our recent experience with Walking Stick Safari Tours in August 2019, was absolutely amazing! The owner, Philemon is simply the best there is! We stayed in lovely tents with a toilet/shower area at the back that was very comfortable. We did the "Best Of Botswana" Tour for 6 days and saw lots of the beautiful Okavango Delta and its animals. . We travelled mostly by a safari vehicle, which was bumpy and long at times, but lead by a knowledgeable guide and amazing driver. We also had two days in a remote area that we reached by a mokoro, or flat bottom boat. It was magical. What an experience for a Canadian. Botswana is a lovely country!

The staff named Photos and Gift and others were absolutely amazing. The food was super delicious and always served with kindness and care as they prepared it by hand over a fire daily. The settings for all of the camping spots were super amazing. We actually camped with elephants just walking by behind out tents. We could hear the frogs sing at night as we faced a river teeming with life. And through it all we felt safe and well taken care of by Philemon and his crew. We had lots of wildlife drives by safari vehicle, mokoro/boat cruises, and even a couple of guided walks. The staff is wonderful, from the cooks to the support staff. They are polite, hard-working, honest, and hospitable. The character of Botswanan people is incredible!

I am a world traveller, and can honestly say, it was the best holiday I ever had! We saw lots of animals in a variety of settings and was able to get to know the warm staff. It was everything I hoped for and much more. I strongly encourage you to go on one of Philemon's tours, he will give you a trip of a lifetime!

In fact, we had such an awesome trip that we want to book another trip in the years to come! Sending warm wishes out to Philemon and Photos and staff on a job well done!!!

They moved mountains for me AND took us on an AMAZING journey
5/5

I’m sure you could go on an amazing Safari with any number of companies but I can only truthfully testify that Phillimon and his team did deliver on providing an EXCELLENT experience but were also. the most compassionate, caring people I could ever hope to know. All the details of our safari were attended to from the moment we landed in Maun; during every step of our trip, details were thoughtfully carried out and we were living the dream come true from day one - then the worst happened for me and that’s when Phillimon and his team crew earned my lifeline long gratitude- six days into my trip, the news that my mother (who was fine when I left home and who along with my father gave me the gift of going on the safari) was dying reached me.
Phillimon drove in the middle of the night to collect me from the bush and get me back to the airport.
When we got back to Maun, Phillimon stayed with me and helped me until the moment I could on a plane. Sadly, despite his heroic efforts (and the determination of my amazing travel agent, Peg Welch), I didn’t make it home in time but the kindness Phillimon (and his team) afforded me eased the pain.
Back to Safari - ANIMALS—- yes, yes - the guides were all so knowledgeable and skilled they made sure we saw and learned about more than we dreamed possible. Our comfort and safety were priority and I jus can’t say enough about how wonderful Walking Stick Travel &Tours is- we WALKED in Botswana- something I will ask always treasure doing.
Go to Botswana, Go with Walking Stick and Go in peace.
